Earlier this week, inspectors announced they had closed 180 food factories
in China in the first half of this year and seized tons of candy, pickles,
crackers and seafood tainted with formaldehyde, illegal dyes and industrial
wax.
"These are not isolated cases," Han Yi, an official with Wei's quality
administration, was quoted as saying in Wednesday's state-run China Daily
newspaper.
Han's admission was significant because the agency has said in the past that
safety violations were the work of a few rogue operators -- a claim aimed
at protecting China's billions of dollars of food exports.
